LOCATION Corfu, Greece
Your Small Group Corfu Cooking Class begins in Corfu Old Town, where you will meet your cooking instructor.
Your first stop will be at the Corfiot open-air food market. Wander through the footways of a local fruit and fish market, peruse the stalls and indulge your desire to try out fresh ingredients and artisanal products. Do not miss the chance to have a chit-chat with the local merchants since they will tell you everything you need to know; from cooking tips to everyday secrets of Corfiot life. Of course, you will enjoy the loud bargains and negotiations, something which is known in Greece as “pazari”; it is ancient history that the louder the seller, the bigger the sales.
Having bought all the essential ingredients for your recipes, leave the open market and continue your purchase of local dairy products and freshly-cut, handmade bread. Once being fully supplied, head towards a welcoming and cosy Corfiot farmhouse which retains its Greek hospitality. Its intimate ambience resembles the typical Grandma’s house in the countryside. There, you will have the chance to discover the almost forgotten cooking technique in a wood-fired oven, which adds an exceptional, incomparable taste to the meal!
Now that you have made your preparation, you are ready to unfold your cooking talents. A welcome treatment consisting of local delicacies is offered upon arrival, whereas beer or wine will accompany your meals. Then, you can decide whether you want to participate in the preparation or just relax and spectate the cooking procedure. Whichever your decision is, there is no doubt that you will gain a broadened knowledge of Corfiot and overall Greek gastronomy. Pay attention to the chef and you will be ready to recreate your favourite Greek dishes when you are back home!
An undeniably worth-having experience which will make you feel like a true local! Greek products, lavish dishes with distinctive flavours as well as a welcoming environment are only a few of what you are promised in your Small Group Corfu Cooking Class.
